FS: 1997 Range Rover 4.6 HSE Black

1997 Range Rover 4.6 HSE. Runs and drives well. I used this truck all last winter to get around without issue. This winter I am working on my 110 so I no longer need this Rover.

This truck has a Maine rebuilt title. It had an accident in the RH middle door. There was no frame damage and the repair is OKish. You can see evidence of it in the door jamb.

Things I know are wrong:
Heated seats (in op. Relays work but seat elements are bad)
Battery is bad (it sat all summer and is now dead)
RF tire has a slow leak (had to fill it up a few times over the summer)
The heat is temperamental. Sometimes it works 100% and sometimes you have to mess with the knob to get the fan to adjust.
Has an aftermarket CD player, not the factory radio (wheel controls now in-op)
Paint is poor. Looks good from across the street but has issues
Remote lock battery is dead. I never lock it so I didn't care
Headliner is sagging in the back
It needs a new intake gasket.
200K miles

New parts:
Shocks (Bilsteins), tie rod ends, rear wiper motor, steering stabilizer, both heater blowers, tune up parts, wiper blades.
The truck was converted to coil springs before I bought it.

Heated windscreen is the balls in the winter.

This is a good winter truck for someone, or for parts.
$1500.

This is a truck that needs to go away. I'm tired of looking at it after all of last year and all summer. I don't want to fix anything on it or deal with anyone who thinks you are going to get a mint Range Rover for $1500. and no your spouse doesn't want this truck to haul your kids around in (buy her something better please or get a good divorce lawyer).
Bring a battery and a trailer and take it home.
Images attached.

Thanks

No warning lights and they all do work. When I got it I went through and did all the work to fix all that kind of stuff (no EFI, ABS or SRS warning lights or codes)
EAS is gone in favor of coil springs.

I unplugged the bonger/speaker because it does have the typical "sunroof not set" type BS that was driving me nuts. Sunroof works fine though.

Perfect. Cut the roof off and make it a soft top trail rig!

When you consider you will get aound $400 over the scales at the scrapyard it is dirt cheap. If it were in VA I would put Farm Use plates on it and run it till it died.

I should just do what dealers do and say everything is mint and that it drives great and "needs nothing" $5500.

It seems people just want to hear what they want to hear, when you tell them the facts about a truck they run away and go buy something even worse from the salesman that tells them everything is great.

Looks like it is off the FleaBay for this baby.

You would get $5500 with an ECR sticker on it.
